This Research Article sheds light upon the background, features and execution of one of the landmark multilateral agreements for safeguarding the children from international parental abduction, i.e., the “Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction”. Furthermore, through the lens of this multilateral treaty, this Article focuses on examining India’s globally reproved decision of abstaining from ratifying this landmark treaty and, evaluates the contemporary position of India’s Judicial apparatus in dealing with instances of International Parental Abduction through case analysis, theorization, and evaluation from a holistic standpoint.
